Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
"Tadpoles" is the name given to this series of early readers which kids can read on their own or with adult assistance. Tips are provided to help enrich the reading experience and make it fun. The fifth point listed is one often overlooked—"Give praise! Children learn best in a positive environment." In each title of the series, on the verso of the title page, there is a photograph or drawing of the author and illustrator with a comment from each. Giraffe seems to take great delight in telling all his animal friends that he is taller than they are. He looks askance at tortoise, chews leaves while lording it over monkey, smiles as he tells hyena how much taller he is, glares down at zebra, smirks when telling hippo, and even lets elephant know that there is no one taller than Giraffe. But wait, all the animals climb on each others backs and together they are taller than Giraffe, but unfortunately it does not last and our smug Giraffe has the last laugh. It is amusing but probably not the best of messages for winning friends. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
